Shakara - (excerpt)

Fela Kuti

Shakara (LP)

Label: Knitting Factory Records

Format: LP

Genre: Jazz

In stock


These percolating, horn-heavy grooves simmer while Fela Kuti lays down his trademark rants, often in deliberately skewered pidgin English....totally unstoppable in its mix of music and message. His voice, interlocking guitars and percussionist Tony Allen turn grooves that often have 1 or 2 chords into complex statements - minimalism made for dancers.
